California's New Gas Tax Kicked in Today

I'm the type of guy that gladly pays higher taxes to enjoy nicer things

That said - this sorta info still stings a big

From KTLA:

California's gas tax rose 5.6 cents a gallon on Monday as an increase intended to raise funding for road repair and transportation programs went into effect.

That adds up to a total of 47.3 cents a gallon in states taxes, according to the state Board of Equalization.

There's also an existing 18.4 cents per gallon federal fuel tax, plus local sales tax.

You know what will make you feel better
